Bang & Olufsen Videre Proximity Glasses Concept for The Blind

The projects core focus was to create a set of marketable proximity glasses for the blind, by incorporating a new edgy design aesthetic with a systematic feedback component.

Using a pioneer within the sound industry, integrating the means of quality sound producing products into the every day lives of people who suffer from visual impairment, “Videre” Directly translated from Latin means “To See”. The aim was to create a device that was intelligent enough to act as a guide, using both First and Third Person viewpoints to accurately predict and map out the blind users living environment. The device would have the capability of describing in detail to the wearer about the area, looking at variables such as space, height and lighting variations. This in turn would allow the user a better understanding of their current location, provide a better means to navigate, by increasing the amount of variables at their disposal and to allow the user confidence to live in an environment without the need of an external aid.
